On the 4-May-2022 at 11:00 a.m. the tenth lecture of the Living Lab lecture series took place. In this talk, ScaDS.AI scientific researcher Hermann Diebel-Fischer outlined the relationship of Ethics and AI. His talk was designed in regard to two fundamental issues:
- the intricate translation processes that take place when we need to make the world computable, i.e. render it into data, and
- the structure of ethics itself.

Ethics and AI – A complicated relationship?
Our understanding of the world is already shaped by technology and therefore, it makes sense to us, to understand ethics technologically. However, this understanding of ethics might not capture how ethics actually works, as it is irrational and unquantifiable, yet still important parts are likely to be left out (cf. (1)). Hermann Diebel-Fischer described ethics as a human endeavour that cannot be considered without referring to its underlying and changing technological structure which at the same time has an impact on technological progress.
